    So, they have Ryzen 3000 series silicon for compatibility testing and will be allowed to make announcements (which would involve model numbers etc) in May? Sounds like Zen2 is nice and close then

    its ok. Asus just as bad. https://www.asus.com/uk/supportonly/CROSSHAIR%20VI%20HERO/HelpDesk/HelpDesk/

    have to use their USA site to get updates for my board. Not impressed.

    Not sure what I am supposed to be seeing there.
    My Asus motherboard had an AGESA 0072 BIOS update nearly a month ago so support for 3000 series is already there.

    This was always an overreaction, based on a MSI call handler not knowing what the plans were. Fingers crossed both the 350 and 450s get the Zen2+(or whatever it's called) update as well.

    I hope the b350 gaming plus gets an update but I have an x470 ac in another box. I might not buy the CPU _ anyway.
